The Board discussed case #s ACU-B2A-2-2002-2 and ACU-P3C-2-2002-3

Mr. Hales reported that the allegations against the respondent included continued practice with an expired license, practice beyond the scope of licensure, and inappropriate client contact.  A complaint was issued to the respondent and no response has been received. The Attorney General’s Office is recommending that the Board enter a notice of proposed default against respondent.  Respondent would then have 7 days to petition the Board.  If a petition is not filed, a judgment could be entered against the respondent. 

Mr. Peebles stated that the respondent had been served adequate notice, and the Board should go ahead with the process.  Ms. Yocum moved that the Board entering a notice of proposed default against the respondent.  Motion was seconded by Mr. Peebles, and carried.    

The Board reviewed correspondence regarding Judy Kay Carter and her request for reconsideration of her practice restrictions. Ms. Carter currently holds an Acupuncture Technician Certificate.   According to the letter submitted by her attorney, Ms. Carter has completed one course of training that the Board feels would relate to Acupuncture.  Ms. Hahn moved that a letter be sent to Ms. Carter requesting documentation of each of the course studies referenced in her attorney’s letter, be sent to the Board for further review of Ms. Carter’s qualifications, and that Ms. Carter clarify for the Board which restrictions she would like lifted.  Motion was seconded by Ms. Yocum, and carried. 

Moved by Ms. Hahn at 10:15 a.m. to adjourn.  Seconded by Ms. Kuty, and carried.
